You Say You Want A Revolution.....
So ya know I get it. When I heard the bull shit about this whole Hillary email and classified information fiasco this morning the first thing that came into my mind were the lines from that character Jim Winthrop in the 1992 movie remake of "Last of the Mohicans".
I believe if they set aside their law as and when they wish, their law no longer has rightful authority over us. All they have over us then is tyranny and I will not live under that yoke so I will stay here no longer.
It's a very moving quote that for the life of me I cannot remember if it is in the actual book. I don't think it is actually, since the actual story is pretty different from the movie version. Despite the more liberal bent of that particular remake I did enjoy it but I digress.
The point is I understand the feeling. I too would like to join a group of patriots and pull this sneering, elitist, above the law bunch of crooks down. As is also typical in times such as these I have seen plenty of people commenting about how our ancestors would already be marching or fighting...
Again while I understand the sentiment I must disagree and to those who like to call others cowards and say they are doing nothing I can only say that many of those who scream for open warfare are actually still in fact working for the enemy. Myself included, although I like to think I am doing it much less than most.
It's simple really. In order for a movement against tyranny to succeed there must be a viable way for the defenders of tyranny to run out of resources. Yes our ancestors went against immense odds and managed to make the cost of tyranny too great on a couple of occasions but no group of oppressed people have ever in the history of the world stood up against a government armed with FIAT currency and unlimited debt.
Of course ultimately there is no such thing as unlimited debt but the economics of today pretty much means when it comes to the survival of a government what was once a dollar in resources is now more like 1/1000th of a cent. It literally means nothing to them until the credit stops.
I am not saying there will never be a time for a show of physical resolve. Indeed I think that time will come but not until the economic back of unlimited funds has been broken. To show physical resolve before then is simply suicide.
For those who say such a view is cowardly I would point out that every time those people buy a car, pay a house payment, go to some high paying job or pay taxes they are aiding and abetting the tyrants. If they really wish to fight against such tyranny as we see in this latest Hillary fiasco then they must be actively removing themselves as much as possible from the system. No one can of course remove themselves completely from it but are they truly doing all they can? In many cases I doubt it. I have even seen anti-government stickers on cars in government employee parking lots. You think those types are really fighting government tyranny?
Just my take on this whole messed up political tyranny we find ourselves in. Yes there are points that can be reached were making a stand even against such odds may become necessary. There may indeed be a straw that breaks the back so to speak and bring with it a time when my view no longer matters. Yet until then the best way to fight tyranny is to starve it as much as possible when everything is leveraged against you doing just that.
That is an action that takes remarkable resolve.
Keep Prepping Everyone!!!!!!
